I started my Medicare journey in 2007 as a Medicare Provider Enrollment Specialist. Since then, I have had a number of titles under the Medicare banner which include, Claim Specialist, Member Services Representative, Provider Services Representative, Telesales Specialist, and also as a Medicare Sales Field Agent. By working in the various departments listed above I was able to acquire enough knowledge to land my current position, which is an Account Executive (Medicare). I truly enjoy working with Medicare beneficiaries to make sure that they understand Medicare and Medicare Advantage. It is my passion to effect change, educate, inform, and resolve issues concerning Medicare and Medicare Advantage. It is imperative that I do my part to educate and inform the Senior Community as much as possible about Medicare and Medicare Advantage. It is very important that each Senior understands Medicare and Medicare Advantage and the benefits according to their plan.
After my time as a licensed Florida Health, Life & Annuity Agent since 1986 in the Health Insurance field, I realized that Medicare was the most misunderstood of all insurance products. Everyone aged 65 or over that has worked at least 10 years in this country (and those that have been on disability for 24 months) is eligible for Medicare but literally no one understands it! It is my choice as a health care professional to be an expert in one field as opposed to somewhat knowledgeable in all aspects of insurance. I chose Medicare as my field of expertise. Over the years, I’ve learned all the ins and outs of original Medicare, as well as supplemental plans, Part D prescription drug plans and the ever popular Advantage plans. I am also experienced in all enrollment periods including Initial Enrollment, Annual enrollment, Open Enrollment and Special Enrollment periods available to Medicare recipients.
On many occasions, I have sat down with Medicare patient that have been given incorrect information by representatives of Social Security and/or Medicare. In these cases, I’ve said “They are wrong, you were given the wrong information. Go back and speak with someone else.” Many times, they will smile and comment, “You think you know more than the people at social security?” My response is “Yes, actually I do!” And in each case, they are only too happy to come back to me and confirm that the information I gave them was correct and that, indeed, the person they had spoken with was incorrect.
